Not so good pronounciation of "döttrar" (Nov 19, 2014).
What is the right one?
==> jag kan aldrig minnas vad de heter!
what is the difference between moster and faster?
moster - mother's sister
faster - father's sister
Would you use moster / faster for an aunt who is your mother's / father's brother's wife too?
Yes, moster/faster or possibly ingift moster/faster (gift = married).
I would just say aunt in English too. It would be too cumbersome to call her my great aunt-in-law.
"My mother's sister has several daughters" got marked wrong. Come on...
Did you report it?
Me too! :(
But "aunt" is the proper word for mother's sister. I mean, we don't accept "mother's sister's child" for "cousin" - same principle.
=> jag har flera kusiner!
=> min mamma har flera syskonbarn!
So what is the difference between flera and manga? I thought that manga - peoples, flera - things, but I wasn't correct.
flera - several
många - many
Both work for people and for things.
Got is a word we are taught in school in england to avoid
This course is based off American English for the translations, an in American English there is basically no problem with got.
What is the problem with "many daughters"?
Flera = several
Många = many
They are not interchangeable in Swedish nor English.
I have also used many and got it wrong- really annoying
Many is många in Swedish not flera!
